Thanks to Nancy for writing:

“I’d like to offer my humble greetings to the drag culture whose production quality in costumes and makeup puts my cheesiness to shame. I lived at 17th and Riggs from 1984-2007, and my kids [now in their twenties] grew up with the High Heel Race as their Halloween experience as much as or more than the school parties or trick-or-treating– I remember several years it was homework leverage, ie you can’t go see the Race until your homework is done. For some years lately I have wanted to present a chair-focused costume, as I have never seen a wheeler participant, so the Iron Throne seemed perfect. Daenerys Stormborn, of the House Targaryen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Mother of Dragons, and Rightful Heir to the Iron Throne.”
